Sunday Service: Sunday, August 28th at 10:00 AM

Who’s Your Gatekeeper? You Can Fire Them! | with Cylvia Hayes

Cylvia’s invitation to Sunday’s talk

Who do you give your power to? Who, or what, do you seek approval from? Sometimes no matter what we do, those gatekeepers we give false power to are never going to let us in.  

Most of us are raised in a culture of competitiveness and inundated with marketing that encourages us to compare ourselves to others. But you know something? We are so much better, so much more than that.    

You are a powerful, spiritual being, here to shine your own unique light and share your own divine talents. Here’s to letting our Highest Selves be our only gatekeepers.

Let’s brew some delicious conversation!

Reminder – Bring a Snack to Share on Sunday

We love it when our community stays to connect and chat after service. We encourage you to bring in a bag of crackers, fruit, granola bars, or dip to share. We’ll provide the coffee and tea!


Kids Activities this Sunday

This Sunday, Genesis Ilada, will lead our kids’ ages 5 – 11 yrs in exploring the strength that comes from working together in harmony!

The nursery is open for children 4 years and under.

Teen and pre-teen – We are currently in the process of designing a program for this age group. If you have ideas and suggestions we’d LOVE to hear from you! We’re ready for some out-of-the-box thinking 😁.

What will we create together?

Member Appreciation 🙏🏽

This week we’d like to give a big thank you to Ananda Das who led such a heartfelt and rich Altar of Love Weekend at Unity. We always appreciate his music and his talks with insights into Hindu archetypes and the ceremonies and trainings he added this weekend were really moving. Please keep us on your traveling circuit, Ananda Das!

AND, if you missed Ananda’s great talk this past Sunday, you can watch the video on our video library page HERE.
